Re: Working, pumping, nursing beyond 1 year
Has your employer given you grief about pumping before? It's a law in my state that my employer has to provide me access to a clean, non-bathroom, private room and (unpaid) break time to pump. It says nothing about up to a certain age. They wouldn't have cared if I'd pumped until Lilah was 18...
Also, you're really focused on your baby's age and birthday - but chances are that people at work won't realize he's over 1.
You can pump or not pump and still nurse on demand when you are together. I stopped pumping in December and we still nurse on demand Friday through Sunday and all night long every night. We did stop the bottle at 14 months when she stopped getting EBM, but she never really liked it anyway.
Lilah 10/08 nursed 25 months
Beatrix 01/11 nursed 30 months
